Gibson has announced an authentic re-creation of Peter Frampton‘s legendary 1954 Les Paul Custom guitar.
The “Phenix” Les Paul Custom is the iconic guitar that graced the cover of the 1976 classic Frampton Comes Alive! LP. Thought to have been lost in 1980 in a tragic cargo plane crash, it miraculously survived and over thirty years later, it was returned to Frampton, and thus earned its “Phenix” nickname.
The Gibson Custom Shop is offering a VOS rendition of this guitar as an Artist model at a price of $6,999. It has all of the classic Les Paul Custom cosmetic appointments, along with a weight-relieved ultra-lightweight mahogany body, gold hardware, Grover tuners, Schaller Strap Locks, and three open-coil Custombucker humbuckers.
Frampton said he couldn’t be more pleased with the look and sound of the brand-new Gibson Les Paul Custom VOS.
“Gibson has gone that extra mile in every area to make this feel and sound the closest to my original, storied Phenix Les Paul Custom guitar,” the Grammy-winning guitarist added.
